HANGZHOU, China and MCLEAN, Va. -- Hilton announced the opening of Conrad Hangzhou, a 50-story, 324-room state-of-the-art hotel that provides easy access to the city's downtown recreational and cultural attractions. With Li'An restaurant sitting on the 50th floor, Conrad Hangzhou features the tallest restaurant in Hangzhou and provides unparalleled views over the fast-developing high-tech city. As part of the Raffles City Hangzhou complex, the hotel is set to serve business and leisure travelers with a best-in-class experience in a world of style.

"We are thrilled to present Conrad Hangzhou as the optimal choice for travelers as we support Hangzhou's rapidly growing industries, and fulfill demand for business destinations," said Qian Jin, area president for Greater China and Mongolia, Hilton. "The opening of this property demonstrates our commitment to growing our presence across China with a well-rounded luxury portfolio. Conrad Hangzhou will consistently deliver intuitive service and inspired experiences to elevate the journeys of discerning global travelers."

Conrad Hangzhou enjoys a unique location in the emerging Qianjiang New Town Central Business District. The hotel is within easy walking distance to government offices, major corporate offices and shopping malls. It is just 100 meters from Jiangjin station for a quick link to the Hangzhou East Railway Station, an important transportation hub in Hangzhou, and 20 kilometers from the Hangzhou Xiaoshan International airport.

"Reflective of the brand's modern, stylish and dynamic luxury ethos, Conrad Hangzhou is ideal for travelers that seek an unrivaled retreat underscored by superior service and hospitality," said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head, Luxury and Lifestyle Group, Hilton. "The hotel's proximity to the Central Business District as well as multiple dining, shopping and entertainment venues make Conrad Hangzhou a natural choice for business and leisure travelers alike."

Designed by renowned Dutch Architect UN Studio, the hotel features two distinct towers, each soaring 50 stories high – an iconic structure and landmark that has helped shape the landscape of the city. The stunning curvature of the exterior is inspired by Hangzhou's tidal bore, a world-renown natural phenomenon of rapid rising tides that occurs once a year.

Guests will find sleek interiors and unique artwork at every turn. The hotel design, inspired by "Lunar Corona," was conceptualized drawing inspirations from the nearby UNESCO World Heritage site, West Lake, a historic, garden style park. The "Lunar Corona" theme is brought to life with warm and spacious décor featured throughout hotel's lobbies, lounges and guestrooms. The banquet spaces are designed to reflect a shimmering sunset over the lake, while the meeting area reflects mountains on the water, all expressing a peaceful environment for both business and leisure.
